DATE NIGHT: Schillecis

Friday night, MageeDaddy and I got to go on a date!  By ourselves.  No kids.  No one asking for demanding sippy cups and ridiculous amounts of candy.  We got to listen to the radio without complaints.  We didn't get interrupted in our conversations.  Ok, ok, you get the picture!  I heart date nights! 

So we went to a New Orleans styled resturant with delicious Canjun and Creole fare - that's Schillecis.  And YUM that's delicious!  MageeDaddy had the Blackened Tilapia and I had the roast duck which was served with jumbalaya which was on the specials menu.  Did I mention how DELICIOUS the food is?  And really, we could have shared a dish there was so much food on the platters! 

I liked the atmosphere of the place.  The decor reminded me of the French Quarters especially with the option of outdoor dining.  The waitstaff wore the traditional New Orleans waiter uniforms - crisp white shirts, black pants, and long black aprons.  Our waiter Spencer was GREAT!  He knew the menu and details about each item available.  He was also great about being attentive but not at all annoying.  The owners of the resturant were actually the first to greet us as we walked in the door and seemed to greet and know alot of the patrons. 

Ok, now on to the main attraction...  THE FOOD!  It was delicious!  The portions for us were big.  The table next to us had po-boys and one person had a 1/2 and 1/2 plate where you can choose two entrees.  Both the po-boys and her platter(and I mean platter not plate) were huge!  The po-boy could have been halved to make it the size of the sandwiches I make at home.  They've got the whole New Orleans menu down...  po-boys, seafood, Cajun, Creole, and even hush puppies!  By the end of our meal we were so full that we couldn't order dessert without hurting ourselves, but there was a waiter taking a plate filled with Beignets to the outdoor dining area - mmmmm.  Prices are very reasonable at the resturant with Dinner Menu prices starting at $8 for appetizers, gumbo or soups for cup$8 or bowl$11, burgers$13 or even elk burgers for $15, the seafood and fish starting at $16, and entrees between $14 for Red Beans and Rice to $32 for the Broiled Gulf Coast Sampler.

With all this said, there's two ways the cost of the meal can go...  safe or we only live once!  Well, since we are averaging one (maybe two) date nights a month, we lived la vida loca.  Or should I say "Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!” :)  And it was worth every penny!!!

Schillecis is located  in Market Street, The Woodlands, Texas between Charming Charlie and the Stadia Sports Grill.

I AM SO JEALOUS. My nine year wedding anniversary is Friday and I know we won't be able to find a sitter because we NEVER find a sitter and with it being Father's Day weekend we figure all the restaurants will be packed. One dinner. That's all I want. One kid-free dinner. *sigh*
